for joining us. >> thank you. >> jamie: what is on the table actually for the u.s.? >> well, we could, declare a no-fly zone but that is complicated, because, while the u.s. has aircraft, in all the nate tows countries, italy and britain and germany we cannot use this aircraft unless we have permission from the host country and that is not likely to come. they've already said they will not give permission unless the u.n. or nato-wide agrees to that and that will not happen. >> jamie: going it alone -- >> we'd be in it alone and, a no fly zone is not just to say, nobody fly over lybia, what a no-fly zone would require is that u.s. aircraft, probably based on carriers, would go in to lybia and would bomb lybia and bomb the air defense system of lybia and fly 24/7 over lybia and that is a major commitment. and, also sets the precedent, what about the next revolution that you will see? because you will see more of these. and, so, the question is, could we do it? yes, we could but it is at a great cost and secondly, joe, jamie is the question, should we? now, right now, so far the libyan rebels are

're not that much closer to a deal. >> gregg: to be fair, republicans are using some tricky math. they claim the total of proposed spending cuts is $102 billion but actually based on this year's budget, it's really $61 billion. both sides are guilty of mathematical deception but there will be a vote to us, harry reid announced it on both the proposals but they are not going to pass, are they? >> it looks like both will fail. i think that is what has to happen so the senate leaders can get their members to the table, they can say look, we have to negotiate. so there has to be a compromise. i think they actually have to go through those motions to convince members, hey, a deal has to happen. >> which brings plea to my next question. in the senate with new numbers, they do have enough votes to block any attempt to change the house bill. doesn't that mean that in reality the only way to fund the government is through house republicans? >> well, i don't know about that. i think everybody has a role to play here. democrats control the senate. they don't have 60 votes but they are in charge and pre
